in the new york city area were locked in on those eyes too. >> yes. the northeast recovers from hurricane sandy new jersey governor chris christie is receiving praise for his handling of the storm. according to a quinnipiac university poll, 36% of new york city voters say christie did the best job responding to the disaster. 22% say president obama's response was strongest. not everyone is pleased with christie's performance. a "new york times" report suggests some republicans still resent the popular governor for doing his job. they say the governor's praise of the president hurt mitt romney's chance on election day. romney advisers refer to data showing a high number of undecided voters chose president obama at the last minute citing his handling of sandy as the major reason. >> come on, man. >> i want to say quickly about christie, how he's acting, what you're supposed to do running for president, him going on "snl" last weekend becoming part of the culture, being loose, making fun of himself is the complete opposite of what rubio is doing. that's the way you run for presiden

new york city police commissioner took a direct shot at the president when he said the president hadn't led on gun control. if you swing a dead cat near the capital, somebody would insist what the president must do first and foremost is comprehensive immigration reform. facing all of this advice and competing pressures, nobody can say what this president most wants to do in his second term. nobody can say what his agenda is going to be. but he and his white house and his presidential election campaign which has disbanded but still seems to be around, they have been more than clear that what the president is going to do first is work on getting the bush tax cuts extended for income levels below $250,000. that's the president's first priority. that's forced upon him by the expiration of those tax cuts at the end of the year. but it seems to be embraced as what he wants to work on. president obama is not arguing for that tax cut expiration date to be extended, to be put off for awhile, to work on something else in the meantime. he seems to want this fight. not only talking about thi

best contributions to the city and state i love. meanwhile, a new rutgers eagleton poll finds governor christie leading mayor booker in a hypothetical race, 53 to 34%. joining me now, david corn and msnbc political analyst, jonathan allen, senior washington correspondent for politico. david corn, let's talk about cory booker for a moment, who i think was poised to run for governor probably prior to chris christie's poll numbers going where they are now, but shouldn't he be looking more seriously at frank lautenberg's senate seat? he's 88 years old. his seat's up in 2014. he will be 90 years old. i, for one, cannot imagine lautenberg running for re-election at age 90. that's going to be an open seat, isn't it? >> it looks like it. if he ran against christie, i guess they could have a contest on who helped obama the most in 2012 and christie might win this. lawrence, you know politicians better than anybody. until they're actually willing to el us their decision, everything's an open door. christie has higher approval numbers than probably bruce springsteen would have in the sta
